We’ve all had the opportunity to ask ourselves, “Now what should I do?” Perhaps it was a time of transition like job loss or retirement. Maybe the question followed a problem. In the well-known gospel story, we hear a rich young man ask, “Good teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life? I’ve already kept all the commandments.” As we begin Lent, we ask with the rich young man, “Now what should I do?” Jesus’ response to the rich young man answers our Lenten dilemma. “Come, follow me.”
What does “Come, follow me” mean for us?
